Electrostatic maintenance: How to unclog spray nozzle tips with Nozzle Clear

Sprayer nozzle tip

Nozzle Clear is available now!

The unfortunate truth is that nozzles clog, no matter what you’re using. Soapy water, paint, sanitizing chemicals – whatever the fluid in question, repeated spraying inevitably leads to buildup. Before you give up or go out to buy more nozzles, though, we’ve got some good news. There’s an easy solution to clearing spray nozzle tips.

Clear clogs to save money

Everyone in the business of electrostatic sprayers knows that the nozzle can be a pain point. Basic maintenance calls for running fresh water through the system for 1 minute after every use, but the reality is that doesn’t always happen. An operator may forget, or the work may be so demanding that there is no time for maintenance steps. Regardless of the reason, there are now a whole lot of clogged sprayer nozzle tips out there.

Once a clog is established, rinsing with water often isn’t enough to clear it. What’s more, trying to clear it with force is likely to damage the machine or expose the operator to safety risks. Frustrated customers have even resorted to buying replacement nozzles for relatively new machines. At EnviroPro Solutions, we hated seeing our customers go through this experience. We started looking for a better way.

That’s how Nozzle Clear came to be.

Keep every machine running like clockwork

Whether an operation has one sprayer or 20, keeping every nozzle tip working is easy with Nozzle Clear. Not only does it break up clogs, but it also prevents them from forming in the first place.

Here’s how it works:

  • To clear a spray nozzle tip that is already clogged:
    • Completely submerge the nozzle in undiluted Nozzle Clear.
    • Let nozzle soak over-night.
  • To prevent spray nozzle tip clogs from forming, after every sprayer use:
    • Dilute Nozzle Clear at a ratio of 2 oz. per gallon of fresh water.
    • Fill sprayer tank with solution.
    • Run solution through sprayer for one minute.
    • Drain remaining solution from tank and store for subsequent use.

And that is all there is to it. No additional rinsing, no complicated prep or storage requirements.
